The Original Ty-Rite is one of my favorite fishing tools and I take it everywhere my fly rod and fly box go. So, of course it came to Alaska with me. I was excited to be able to introduce Alaska to Ty-Rite and share it through social media and in fly shops. A big shout out to a great fishing tool!!! Also, made in the USA.
The Ty-Rite Jr. is a small orange tool that holds a fly at the bend in the hook to prevent dropped flies, hooked fingers, and unwanted scents on your fly. Most of all, it makes tying your tippet on the fly so much easier. Just grasp the fly, insert the line, twist and tie the knot. Easy!
You can easily attach the Ty-Rite to your shirt, vest or lanyard. I prefer to attach it to my Fish Pond lanyard, which is either clipped to my fly vest or wader belt.
How do I catch more fish by using this tool? Well, I don’t have to handle the fly with my fingers. Our hands have body oils, and maybe some bug spray or sunscreen on them. Fish don’t like those scents. I also believe it’s because I have my line in the water more with good knots, especially when catching salmon. They are super strong fish and bad knots will be exposed.
